A very nice antique Tibetan silver bracelet known as a Dhugu. Engraved with 'longevity symbol' line decoration wherer the ends terminate. It has a high silver content but is undoubtedly mixed with other metals to give more strength to the piece. Open ended bracelets have long been popular in Western Tibet and they can be very simple to highly ornate.
